How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

A past project involved students creating posters/3D projects that showed the parallels between Star Wars and The Hobbit/LoTR (plot, hero's journey, characters, settings). I have used "A New Hope" to analyze The Hero's Journey. I have Star Wars posters, a Yoda chair as a part of my flexible seating, and many references (including a Yoda bathroom pass I made), and I make frequent references to Star Wars throughout the year. I use The Force as a tool so that I don't need to discipline students.
